Arsenal targets new striker: Borja Mayoral on the radar


Arsenal is in the hunt for a new goal-scorer, the latest rumors suggests they’re looking at Getafe striker Borja Mayoral. The Gunners want to add more scoring power to their team, especially after a tough FA Cup loss to Liverpool where they missed lots of chances to score.

The striker situation at Arsenal is a bit thin. Gabriel Jesus is back after a small knee injury, and Eddie Nketiah is the only other natural option. Club legend Ray Parlour has been saying they need more choices in attack, especially when they’re trying to score goals.

The name Ivan Toney from Brentford has been floating around in the rumors, but Brentford’s coach Thomas Frank says a move is unlikely unless Arsenal makes an unbelievable offer. Arsenal also spent a lot of money last summer, so they need to be careful with their budget this January.

In response to these challenges, Arsenal is reportedly turning its attention to Borja Mayoral. He’s a striker from Getafe. The Gunners have apparently made a £22 million offer to sign him in January. However, Getafe wants around £39 million for him. Interestingly, there’s a twist in the story. Brentford, previously linked with Ivan Toney’s possible departure, is now said to be looking at Mayoral as a replacement.

Borja Mayoral: A top-level option

Borja Mayoral has caught the eye with his impressive record of 12 goals in just 19 La Liga games this season. Despite Getafe wanting more money for him, Arsenal sees him as a good option. Some in the press even call him “top level” (Pedro Gonzalez).

Borja Mayoral’s knack for finding the back of the net consistently makes him an attractive prospect for the Gunners, and as the transfer saga continues, Mayoral emerges as a potential solution to Arsenal’s striking needs.
